Cossacks 3 finally in open beta for all Linux users

Posted by , / 6960 views

Promised many times and repeatedly delayed, Cossacks 3 [Steam] is now officially in open beta for all Linux gamers.

The great news is that the online gameplay is compatible with Windows!

The game seemed to work pretty well when I last tried it during the closed beta on Nvidia. On AMD it's possible it may have issues, as editor BTRE has been unable to run it.

See the full announcement here for further information.

I'm really pleased they are a developer we can keep in our good books for really trying their best to deliver the Linux version.

We will have much more thorough thoughts available when it leaves beta.

Does it count as a Linux sale if I buy now? I'd definitely like to have it but I want the credit to go to our platform.

Among disappointments and delays this is a bit of good news.

When I am sure it works properly on Linux I will probably pick it up.

Good question. I'm ready to buy it.

At last...

Well, the game itself is not so great anyway, and they prefered to sell DLC instead of fixing some bugs and improving QOL stuff, to make Cossack more 2017-ish. Still "nice", but clearly not a great RTS game.

Yes, of course. All purchases on Steam will count towards the platform it's purchased and played on. To repeat what I say every time: This is only an issue for purchases outside of Steam. I've had this confirmed from many developers.

Thank you! Bought it!

Hopefully they'll also release it on GOG when it's out of beta, many companies seem to forget there are Linux gamers on GOG (looking at you Techland....or should I say Lazyland).

That's great that the developer has worked through the showstopper bugs, I will buy it once its out of Beta. STASIS is also now working on Linux.
